The CDC has issued new guidelines for travel, with good news for Americans who have been fully vaccinated.

The agency says vaccinated people can travel “at low risk to themselves” as long as precautions like mask-wearing are followed. International travelers should still get tested before and after returning to the U.S.

However, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walansky still recommends against travel due to the uncertainty of rising coronavirus cases.

‘Fully vaccinated’ means at least two weeks have passed since your final scheduled vaccine dose.

Do you plan on traveling once you’re fully vaccinated? What trips did you have to miss out on last year?
